Welcome to the DCPS Lab

The Dependable Cyber-Physical Systems (DCPS) lab is directed by Prof. Khaza Anuarul Hoque and located in the F. Robert & Patricia Naka Hall building at University of Missouri-Columbia. The research mission of the DCPS Laboratory is to develop theory, methods, and tools for supporting modeling, design, and (formal) verification of highly dependable embedded and cyber-physical systems (CPS). Specifically, the goal of DCPS lab is to enhance the reliability, safety, security and energy efficiency of complex computing systems.

To this end, we conduct research to answer the scientific questions we deem most important, specifically in the following areas (see Research).

  • Formal method in robotics and automation.
  • Fault tolerant, secure and energy-efficient ML/AI hardware.
  • Cybersecurity issues in virtual reality (VR) applications.
  • Cybersecurity issues in intelligent prognostics.

We are grateful for funding from National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and University of Missouri.
